2018 marked our 5th annual “9/11 Honor and Serve Foundation” ceremony. Our theme was a “First Responder Recognition”, honoring the First Responders of Bigfork and surrounding communities in the Flathead Valley, bringing community awareness of the people (often volunteer) and the services they provide. The event was held on Labor Day, September 3rd, along with multiple wildfires burning throughout the state of Montana, we had a good crowd of people come out and show their support for those who serve them every day during emergencies. There were representatives from Fire Departments, EMS, Law Enforcement, K-9 Rescue Dogs and an added treat, Two Bear Air flew in and landed one of their elite Rescue Helicopters. Almost on que, Two Bears Air received a 9/11 call during the ceremony. We all turned our attention to the crew as the suited up and took off to help someone in need that day.
